Hula Hoop Reading Tent

What a fun project!

This is for my goddaughter, but she’s away on vacation so I had my schnauzer, Peanut sit in as a model.  Make no mistake, this little guy deserves a little tent for sleeping in for being such a fantastic pet. ❤

The tutorial can be found here.  Of all the hula hoop tent tutorials out there, I thought this one was the cutest and had pretty great instructions.  I couldn’t resist making a few modifications to make the process easier.  I wish that I had made it just a tad tighter around the top so it didn’t look so floppy – I was so scared that it wasn’t going to be wide enough that I overcompensated.  The tent and border are from my goddaughter’s bedding from when she was in a crib.  She’s 4 now and her mom had saved the bedding for a sewing project.  The drapey part is a fitted sheet that I had left over from a previous project so all in all it came together rather cheaply! Always nice when I’m doing a project that requires yards and yards of fabric.

One thing I did learn is that there is double-sided Velcro out there.  Did you all know this? It’s called “One Wrap”.  I used it to keep the hula hoop in place.

This was my spring break project and now that spring break is over, it’s back to my real job: homeschooling the kids.  Happy Spring Y’all!

Craft Apple

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right? Well, crafting is my apple. It’s what I do to maintain my sanity while taking care of my family. I homeschool my three boys, ages 14, 15, and 16), am a quilter, a bagaholic, and pattern designer.  Oh – and I also like taking pictures.
